Better words

Be clear, be consistent. Translating will be much cheaper and quicker. We can set up and manage terminology lists specific to your product. We also know how to apply the same principles to graphics, illustrations, apps, video, audio, and navigation elements of e-learning and web content.

Good tools

Apply the best, to get the most from smart people. We can use computer-assisted translation (CAT) and machine translation (MT) tools. We know and use the tools and technologies you might use to create and build documents, software, e-learning and websites. We can apply specific combinations of tools, processes, scripts, and workarounds, to ensure the best available tools are supporting your people and our people effectively.
